Palmgren targets Eagles fall


super_eaglesAfter playing a draw against Malawi, Namibia head coach, Roger Palmgren, has declared total war against the Super Eagles of Nigeria with the strong believe that the Nigerian team would fall in this week’s 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier scheduled of the Independence Stadium, Windhoek.

The Brave Warriors face the African champions on Wednesday with the odds being on the Eagles side after the Stephen Keshi-tutored defeated the Harambee Stars of Kenya in Nairobi last week.

The coach believes that his lads could record an upset against Nigeria if the excellent preparations the team has gone through is anything to go by.

“My boys played well against against Malawi in our last match but were unlucky not to have won the game. They showed me what they are made of and we will be better prepared for Nigeria on June 12.

Namibia’s draw against Malawi on Matchday Four means the Super Eagles can progress to the final round of qualifying with a game to spare if they win in Windhoek and Malawi fail to beat Kenya.

Palmgren was quick to give his assessment on the Warriors’ performance on Wednesday.

“We created more chances than Malawi. Lazarus (Kaimbi) and Tangeni (Shipahu) missed good chances.

“We played very well and our offensive play was great, but we could not score. I’m satisfied but we could have done much better.

“Our players were very committed and disciplined but gave the ball away easily in the middle and that was not good. Malawi had more possession, but we had better chances,” he said.
